DILLIAN WHYTE looks in serious shape to ensure he remains WBC mandatory challenger after a stunning body transformation.

The Body Snatcher has been shedding the pounds in Portugal ahead of his all-important bout with Alexander Povetkin on Saturday night.

Whyte came in it at his career heaviest for his last bout

The heavyweight has been working out in Portugal over lockdown

Whyte, 32, has spent his lockdown being put through his paces in the gruelling heat to ensure he works himself back into terrific shape.

And he looks a far cry from his last scrap when he tipped the scales at a career-heavy 19st 5lbs.

Whyte took the fight against Mariusz Wach on just three weeks notice and looked sluggish inside the ring despite scraping a unanimous point win.

After months of hard work, Whyte has lost the extra fat and showed off his ripped figure with a picture on Instagram.

He will need to be at his fearsome best to beat the former WBA champion at the weekend to land his long-awaited title shot with either Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder.

Whyte is not short of confidence and insisted his game plan will be to knock Povetkin out.

He told Sky Sports: “I respect the guy, but it’s on.

“All the smiles and all the other stuff, I know what he’s coming to try and do to me, so I don’t want to be sat there next to him, acting all cool and pally pally. No.

“I want to try and knock him out and I’m sure he’s going to try and knock me out because that’s what he does.”

Whyte’s surroundings have been less glamourous following his return to the UK and is holed up in a Winnebago in Brentwood to prepare for his fight in Eddie Hearn’s backyard.

He exclusively told SunSport: “I drove 40-hours with my three dogs out to my training base in Portugal for a 22-week camp away from home for this fight.

“Now I am living in a caravan for a week before fighting a dangerous Russian, in an Essex field, on the side of the motorway.

“I will fight anyone, anywhere and that is why I am the real Gypsy King and I have even got my flat cap to prove it.”

The WBC have already insisted that the winner must fight the WBC title belt holder currently held by Fury.

The original Gypsy King needs to fulfil his contractual obligations to scrap Wilder for a third time with the ultimate crown jewel to take on Anthony Joshua to decide who will be named the undisputed champ.
